Forecasts

Monkfish (10/11), Envoi Allen (6/4), Colreevy (7/1), Franco De Port (40/1)

Verdict

Only 4 runners but it's surely one of the most eagerly anticipated novice chases for a long time, with outstanding pair MONKFISH and Envoi Allen clashing. The former hasn't put a foot wrong this season and is narrowly preferred to a rival who will hopefully get his career firmly back on track after his early departure at the Cheltenham Festival.

  1. MONKFISH (IRE)
  2. ENVOI ALLEN (FR)
  3. COLREEVY (IRE)
